    Couldn't find a place for this subject so I just put it in the general section.

    Just heard that Essendon Bombers got kicked out the finals and fined 2 Million dollars for its 2012 supplements program! They lost their draft picks for 2013 and 2014 and their head coach banned for 12 months. Wow big news.

    Crikey never seen an NRL or AFL team in Oz get in trouble like that!! Harsh?

    Would dearly love this to happen to the Bulldogs, Rabbitohs and/or Roosters

    I wonder if their fans are going to pay the fine?

    Soft. They were found to be into it (the drug program) up to there eyeballs. James Hird and his cronies should face criminal charges. He shouldn't be anywhere near an AFL club for five years IMO.

    Good article from peter fitzsimmons about how they didn't get done for the illegal drugs, just bad paperwork.

    And anna mears said, how would the world take it if lance armstrong only got demoted to ninth?
